Growing urbanisation has fuelled market demand in the automotive, general machinery and transport industry. The growth in these three main sectors have led to an augmented demand for metal machine tools and in turn are the growth accelerators of the global lathe machines market.One of the main factors likely to inhibit the growth of the global lathe machines market during the forecast period is the relatively high costs associated with deploying lathe machines. Significant U.S import restraints is another aspect likely to affect the growth of the global lathe machines market.
Asia Pacific is expected to be the most dominant market in the global lathe machines market and is predicted to be the fast growing regional market in the coming years. Many initiatives such as “Make in India” along with rising automotive production have made APAC the focal point in global manufacturing, which is the main reason for the fast upsurge of the lathe machines market in this region.
Lathe is a tool that rotates any workpiece on its axis in order to carry out numerous operations such as cutting, deformation or drilling, knurling and so on with tools applied on that workpiece to create a symmetrical object about an axis of rotation. In short, a lathe machine is used to shape various work pieces. Lathe machines have many applications; lathe machines are used in woodturning, metalworking, metal spinning, glass working and thermal spraying. The main purpose of a lathe machine is to facilitate unfinished to finished metal product transformation.
